    Summary

    "Alex groans, downs another gulp, and thinks she should have known from that alone. Only a supervillain from Kara’s family would be an eco-terrorist, anti-capitalist hippie."

    Metropolis has Superman. Gotham has Batman. National City has...a supervillain. And Alex Danvers is perfectly fine with that, until the day her sister decides to fight said supervillain.

    Summary

    Golden, beautiful, charming, pompous Arthur, drawing everyone to him like moths to a flame. She thinks of how he is the only other person in the world who understands what it's like to be Uther Pendragon's child, to crave the approval of that looming shadow and want to break free of it in the same breath. She hates him. She hates him. She hates him.

    It’s only part of the truth, even now.

    Summary

    Lena casts her mind around for the last time she felt this unmoored, this off-balance, by a woman, and can't come up with anything. Kara Danvers is unlike anybody that Lena has ever met; the sweetest, bubbliest person Lena’s yet to come across, and simultaneously one of the saddest, who is probably lying to everyone that she meets. It’s an impossible contradiction to wrap your head around, and Lena should probably stop hiding in this bathroom and trying.

    (Or, Kara and Lena get parent-trapped into a relationship by a goofy little alien.)

    Summary

    She picks up one of the chess pieces and fingers it fondly. “I must admit, I had a bit of a hot head in those days. I believe I told everyone that they probably couldn’t win if they played against me anyway - that the logic was much too complex for them. But if they did dare, I’d go easy on them.”
    “And what happened,” Mildred rests an elbow on the table and leans closer, intrigued.
    “Well, this girl I hardly knew, who never spoke except for in class, but who always got top marks, sat down across the table and informed me that so long as I explained the rules to her, there was no need to go easy.”
    “Miss Hardbroom?!”
    “That’s the one,” says Pippa grinning at the memory.

    ****

    Mildred suffers a heartbreaking loss, but as she grows up she discovers that family comes in all forms.

    Summary

    "I'm Ava. Ava Sharpe."

    Sara put her hand out to her. It took Ava a few second to process the gesture, but she eventually, hesitantly, took Sara's hand in her own. She shook it as gently as she could, like she was made of glass and her hand would shatter if Ava squeezed too hard. There was something so disconcerting with this version of Sara that Ava couldn't shake off. She was so... light. Fragile, maybe? No, not really. But... something. Something different. She didn't like it, but she didn't hate it, either.

    "I'm Sara Lance, apparently." Sara's smiling eyes met hers, a twinkle dancing in her impossibly blue irises. "Nice to meet you again, Ava."

    _

    When Sara hits her head during a mission and ends up with temporary amnesia, the Legends try their best not to upset their newly chirpy and carefree Captain by hiding painful information about her past until she recovers. Thankfully for them, and at everyone's surprise, Sara handpicks Ava to be her "caretaker".
